In a strange turn of events, it seems that Age of Ultron will see Scarlett Johansson's [Black Widow](movie:1070824) begin her ascent into Captain America's position. Looks like we won't see Bucky, or even Wilson take up the mantle.
Sorry, y'all. Really bad, and really late April Fool's joke, but, she does use the shield, as seen here in the latest TV spot:
The new catchphrase of the team is, "We have a Black Widow." Now, I don't know if this is Ultron himself, or simply a drone, but, either way, She puts a beat-down on it. Check out the full trailer, for more Avengers goodness:
Well, that was fun. And, if you aren't stoked for [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035), then you're a corpse.
Now, this isn't the first time we've been shown another Avenger using Cap's shield. Who can forget Thor blasting it through waves of drones in one of the earlier theatrical trailers?
This raises a pretty big question (well, pretty dumb, honestly.): Why is Cap giving of his shield so freely? For what reason does Scarlett Johansson's Natasha Romanov fight with it? I mean, Thor's use is pretty obvious, but, why? It's as simple as that. Why is Rogers giving up his shield, at least temporarily? Now, we all remember the display from Comic Con with a broken, scarred shield. Besides a trip to Wakanda, what are we to expect?
